Sometimes I just like to rummage around in the library's collection of CDs. I found a "Greatest Hits" CD from Kathy Mattea. I love this song. It's old, been out since 1987, but it doesn't get old.
Here are the words:
(Paul Nelson/Gene Nelson) Charlie's got a gold watch Don't seem like a whole lot After thirty years of drivin' Up and down the interstate But Charlie's had a good life And Charlie's got a good wife And after tonight she'll no longer Be countin' the days Eighteen wheels and a dozen roses Ten more miles on his four day run A few more songs from the all night radio Then he'll spend the rest of his life With the one that he loves They'll buy a Winnebago Set out to find America They'll do a lot of catchin' up A little at a time With pieces of the old dream They're gonna light the old flame Doin' what they please Leavin' every other reason behind Eighteen wheels and a dozen roses Ten more miles on his four day run A few more songs from the all night radio Then he'll spend the rest of his life With the one that he loves

What's this blog like?
Well, this blog is like...sitting around the kitchen table with friends and family...like a game of Rook with friends...sitting on the porch or deck or driveway with friends and neighbors...come on grab a drink and have a seat! You're in Ruskin Heights, or Terrace Lake Gardens or Stratford Estates for example. We might talk about anything--the new people moving in down the street, the economy, the Chiefs, crime, the mayor, health care, national new, world news, religion, cars, politics...careful now! Wide ranging, opinionated, but always respectful. In the end, we are all neighbors.
